Home working is a term used for people who have a contractual or voluntary arrangement with their employer to work from home. With more employees choosing to work from home, both employers and employees have responsibilities under Health & Safety legislation that now extend to the home.  Additionally, homeworkers are expected to comply with all other relevant workplace policies and procedures, as they would if they were working in the employer’s workplace.

To ensure the successful management of home working, it is important that arrangements are clear and agreed in advance. A consistent approach is essential for both managers and employees.
